Bridges or walls — what is the future of the North American relationship?

On June 6, Policy Options magazine, a digital publication of the Institute for Research on Public Policy, hosted a luncheon and panel discussion on the topic of the North American trilateral relationship. The event couldn’t be timelier, taking place as it did a few weeks before the meeting in Ottawa of the Canadian, US and Mexican leaders. Energy and the environment; the cross-border movement of business people, tourists and students; innovation; and the anti-NAFTA rhetoric emerging from the US election campaign are just some of the issues swirling around the so-called Three Amigos summit.
